I'll be in that line exactly three weeks from this morning (Thursday). Passing through Austin and making sure that we don't miss Franklin's this time. I'm old, but I'll be there at 7a after flying in at about midnight the evening before from the West coast.
It's on the bucket list also and, like I said, I'm old. This is it.
Was in North Bend, Oregon for the weekend (5/25-5/26/2013) watching a KCBS competition. Saw Moe Cason there with two new BGE smokers. He was very cordial and allowed for a photo op especially after I showed him a picture of my baby back at home (BGE XL). A great personality even during the heat of battle.
He did very well in the competition and his Ponderosa BBQ team was the Reserve Champion.
